9. Red Velvet, "Dumb Dumb"
Director: Beomjin J
Red Velvet is relatively new in the world of K-pop, but their video for "Dumb Dumb" stands out with a distinct aesthetic and muted palate. Any of the dozens of the setups packed into it could appear in the pages of your favorite oversized, overpriced lookbook — though it's probably not advisable to try their jorts in the front/jeans in the back look. Of course, if you like your K-pop clips more over-the-top, nothing from this year really beats the explosive grandiosity of "Bang Bang Bang" from genre legends Bigbang.
